Despite the gross weather I wanted to make the most of my free day so I just layered up and then headed into the Cairngorms starting with Caringorm itself. Spent the majority of the run with no path and 10-20m vis so had my compass out the whole time. Horrific icy rain and 2 degrees up high but I had enough clothes on so didn’t get cold. Sadly neither my waterproof rucksack cover or really expensive new jacket are in the slightest bit waterproof so I was drenched through and most of my food was ruined. Managed off a kitkat and an energy gel. Felt like I kept the effort super easy but HR was higher than expected. Pace was pretty slow but that was a combo of effort, off path terrain and climb. Genuinely an enjoyable day out.
